    Classic rock icon John Fogerty's all-star duets album, Wrote a Song for Everyone, is due out on May 28, and the singer says he plans to do some touring in support of the album.

    Once he is done with touring, he'll work on his autobiography, which is slated for a 2014 release.

    For one thing, the book won't be any sort of tell-all.

    "This is not going to be that sort of tawdry, supermarket kind of thing," Fogerty told Billboard.com about his book. "If there's any names of people in my life who have been close friends, lovers, all of that, who are invisible, it's gonna stay that way. I'm not looking for the big reveal or to get a lot of stuff off my chest or anything like that."

    Rather, he will focus on his career and put that to page. "I've had a remarkable life in music," Fogerty said. "I started as a child who knew his field of joy almost from the time he could move, and that was music. And everybody noticed; everyone around me noticed, 'Wow, he's musical. Look, he's dancing,' and I was still in diapers. Since then it's been a journey, and I just want to tell that story... of the original joy of a child discovering music and being just... If i can ever convey how that feels, I think it's something worth talking about."

    There ya go.

    Will you read John Fogerty's memoir even though it won't be salacious? He did split acrimoniously from his former Creedence Clearwater Revival bandmates, but expect no mud to be slung.
